ROSWELL, GA — The Roswell Arts Fund is gearing up to debut its third annual ArtAround Roswell Sculpture Tour, which will feature 10 original works on display throughout the city. These temporary pieces will join six permanent ArtAround sculptures purchased from tours in 2016 and 2017.
The tour’s opening celebration will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday, April 14 at Riverside Park. This free event will be located near Ice Pops, a giant colorful popsicle sculpture by artist Craig Gray, sponsored by Synovus.
This family-friendly celebration will feature entertainment, including a live band and dance performances, a ribbon cutting, interactive games, food trucks, arts and crafts activities, King of Pops popsicles, and more. Mini-tours of ArtAround will be offered and shuttle service, courtesy of Carl Black Roswell will be provided on a free, but limited, basis (For more news like this, find your local Patch here.
